"There are deaths, a new murder mystery happening, new families, and a lot of changes," said Sanchez, pointing to Ana Ortiz's character Marisol Duarte getting her own maid after becoming engaged to the rich Nicholas Deering, played by Mark Deklin.
In Season 1, Duarte was a college professor who went undercover as a maid to prove her son's innocence in murder of another character, Flora.
"Ana has her own maid, which is crazy! And she's engaged to this very wealthy man and she's going through this 'who is he — for real?'" Sanchez told Fox News Latino. "Because he's a little bit devious, actually. He has secrets."
Sanchez, who plays Carmen, revealed that her character will carry on a fake relationship with gay character, played by Matt Cedeno, to help him conceal is sexuality to his fans.
"She decides to forget about love and become the beard for Alejandro Rubio because he's gay and a big pop star and he doesn't want the world to know he's gay," Sanchez said. "And then thinking that's going to change my life dramatically and I'm going to accomplish my dreams, but of course everything goes wrong and she's completely out of touch with reality and (makes) bad choices and insanity. But I love her. She’s crazy."
